DroSpeGe*: Drosophila Species Genomes

This service provides a preview of newly sequenced Drosophila genomes, with genome maps and BLAST sequence search. Genome maps include D. melanogaster genome homology, homologies to nine eukaryote proteomes, marker gene locations, and Drosophila microsatellites. Current genome assemblies can be BLASTed, with links to genome maps of your BLAST matches. Annotation data are available in Gene Finding Format (GFF) for these whole genome comparisons. Read details of the Drosophila Genome Sequencing proposals from NIH fruitfly genomes

* "DroSpeGe" is pronounced like, and play on, the name of Ottorino Respighi, the Italian composer known for his symphonic poems, such as The Fountains of Rome (1917) and Roman Festivals (1929).
